Framed Dead Insects and Butterflies for Macabre, Quirky Gift-Giving

I didn't realize I would be so intrigued by these, but I continuously surprise myself! These gifts are one of a kind and won't go unnoticed. Real Butterfly Gifts on Etsy sells framed butterflies and other cool insects. They are all framed with a 99% UV blocking glass so they will last a long time. There are so many of them to show, so I tried to vary them and pick a few favorites.

This Real Framed Charaxes Zingha Pair Red African Heart Shaped Butterfly is framed in a black wood frame. I like how it shows the variety of coloring for the same species they're beautiful!

The Real Framed Taenaris also known as the Silky Owl is framed in a 6 1/2" square black frame. This is a beautiful species from Papua New Guinea.

Stunning Real Windmill Butterfly is also called a swallowtail butterfly because of it's unique wing shape. This is from Thailand! It is in a black 6 1/2" square frame.

I feel that this guy needs to be on here. The Real Framed Silence Of The Lambs Male Deaths Head Moth is incredibly rare to find, so this is quite a treat! These guys are in a black frame that measures about 5" tall X 6 1/2" wide.

This is such a delicate looking butterfly. The Real Framed Pearl White Ghost Butterfly has really unique wings and is very shimmery. It is in a black frame that is 6 1/2" square.

I can't even believe this Morpho Zephyritis Real Rare Iridescent Blue Morpho Framed Butterfly is real. The wings are colored in metallic shades of blue. These colors are not a result of pigmentation but are a reflection of incidental light through the microscopic scales covering the wings. This is framed in a 6 1/2" Square black frame.

Another one of my favorite moths is the Framed Madagascar Comet Moon Moth Argema Mittrei Male. The Comet moth or Moon Moth is a large silk moth found only in certain parts of Madagascar and is one of the world’s largest moths. The black frame is 9.5" wide X 12" tall.

"All of the real Butterflies and insects used in their framed shadowbox butterfly art have been raised on natural cruelty free tropical farms around the world. These educational farms, aviaries and co-ops provide a real source of income for native people who would otherwise have to sell trees off of their land or raise cattle which are both ecologically disastrous." - Real Butterfly Gifts!

There is a huge selection from Real Butterfly Gifts! Many of them look so unreal and jaw dropping. I encourage you guys to really take a look, I have barely scratched the surface. Share your favorite butterfly or even beetle by Real Butterfly Gifts in the comments below.
